    Think about what was going on a year ago!

    $4.00+ gas
    Fert going through the roof
    Economy was thought to be tanking

    Boy what a difference in a year makes!

    I think we are in the drivers seat right now. Very few business's are growing or maintaining, but we can.

    With what I am seeing and hearing on fert prices right now...I think 2010 will be a very PROFITABLE year ever! Pre prices are lower now then they were when I started 5 years ago.

    Glad I raised my prices this year...as next year no increase will be needed but can capatalize on LOW INPUT COSTS!!!!


    What are your ideas or thoughts on this?

    Shhhhh! Don't say that too loud. Somebody might wake up and realize that we are seeing some good breaks lately. Let's hope it continues. I'm really looking forward to reduced cost for 2010. That being said I won't relax till all the fert we need is in my building. Price increase for our customers? Too early to tell. Let's just say if we can do an increase we will. A little bit every year just to be safe.
